To craft an uncommon upgrade in Nightingale, you need to make a Simple Upgrade Bench and upgrade any item of your choosing.

A Simple Upgrade Bench can be made using four Lumber, two Ingots, and three Twine. You can find this recipe in the Crafting: Basics & Repair section of the building menu and it’s both required for the completion of this task and super important for upgrading your tools and gear in Nightingale overall.

Once you have all the materials you need, place this item wherever you want it to be set up and exit Build Mode. Walk up to the outline of your Simple Upgrade Bench and press E to immediately craft it using all of the items you gathered. Now that you have this workstation made, you can move on to the next step in this process.
